That’s a headline at Furious Seasons today. Follow the link, I’m not up to writing much except to say that as Philip points out the paper on the study is completely unclear about the bipolar people in the study, but I would be willing to bet that the key factor is indeed anti-psychotics and not the convenient psychiatric label you’ve been stuck with.
In other words, anti-psychotics cause elevated cancer risk.
And the pretty thing? It’s a 308% increase in colon cancer. The cancer that killed my brother three months ago yesterday.
I’ve been on antipsychotics for 20 years. Pretty much non-stop the whole time. And very high doses for 15 years. It’s just another moment in this process that I shake and cry with rage. I used to say years ago, “I wonder what the long term effects of these drugs might be?” But I never thought I had an option.
Remember I was on more than 1000% more antipsychotic than I am on now. What the fuck for?? I’m virtually off all of it now and better for it.
If you don’t read Furious Seasons often, you should. Philip documents with lots of scientific proof how these drugs don’t work and how it makes no sense, except in perhaps critical moments of crisis to use many of these drugs at all. I’m not good at collecting all that data. Philip’s site is a goldmine of information. It’s worth rummaging through the archives.
